Episode 73: Family Fued Night
– Local Spotlight: Radloff’s Cigar Shop and On the Rox Lounge; Rochester, NH

This week we do an impromptu in-lounge episode from Radloff’s in Rochester NH. Jamie Radloff joins us for an informative episode about cigars and lounges from the the perspective of a lounge owner. While doing a lounge recon to a shop we had not been to, but have been planning to visit for quite some time, we hit a good night to do a show with the owner of this fine establishment. In the bar it’s Family Fued night, the game can be heard in the background for the first half of the episode.

Episode 72: One Take
– Local Spotlight: Churchill’s Smoke Shop & Lounge; East Providence, RI

One take doesn’t mean there was no editing. We have a lot of Cigar talk during the first half and a lot of political and sports topics for the second half. The Hidden Herf is another crowd favorite, many on the panel had smoked it recently but no one was even close on a guess. We have a special guest to close out the episode, just don’t skip the last five minutes.

Episode 71: Third Time’s the Charm
– Local Spotlight: Two Guys Smoke Shop; Nashua, NH

Most episodes are good on a single take. It takes multiple tries to get this one off the ground. It was so much fun for us to do all the takes that we needed to share the antics. We talk about RoMa Craft Tobac and meeting the owners. Also the Cigar Hacks Board Meeting, and of course it’s getting close to boating season which means fishing is right around the corner. We cover a lot of ground, talk about a lot of cigars, and just laugh away 75 minutes. The Hidden Herf turns out to get one of our highest ratings and no one is even close on a guess.

Episode 70: Lego My Fuego
– Local Spotlight: Castro’s Back Room; Bedford, NH

The Oscuro limo returns us to Castro’s in Bedford, NH for a second time in just 10 weeks. This lounge is great for recording late in the evening on a Friday. The Hidden Herf receives mixed reviews and isn’t too hard guess. We have fish stories. Phil, our host at Castro’s, joins us for the Local Spotlight segment. Nurse Rick attempts to do the closing segment, how hard can it be?

Episode 69: Wine’em Dine’em
– Local Spotlight: C.L.E. Cigars at Twins Smoke Shop; Londonderry, NH

C.L.E. Cigars regional sales manager Jim Price joins us for this episode. Jim introduces us to the Wynwood Hills Mayhem, a Honduran Corojo. The wrapper binder and filler are all Corojo making this a puro. We forego the Hidden Herf to make way for this special guest and our new favorite C.L.E cigar. This is a fitting cigar as the usual Hack “mayhem” ensues.

Episode 68: Princes and Kings
– Local Spotlight: Drew Estate, March Madness, and The Shriners

Joined by a new recruit who hails from the DR the laugh-o-meter is set on high. The Hidden Herf starts out strong but mellows mid-stream; it looks like the Habano, not the Maduro. We cover Podcast Juice, El Oscuro, The Oscars, and a few personnel changes in the local area. The Reverend handles the Current Events. We report on three events we attended this week. The panel will bet on just about anything including how many boxes Cigar Hack Dave picks up at Two Guys March Madness.

Episode 67: Three Hack-migos
– Local Spotlight: Podcasting Locations Past and Future

Nurse Rick, Dommie the Dominator and Cigar Hack Dave hold down the fort for this episode. We talk about some rare cigars, the Oscuro limo and March Madness. The Hidden Herf is an economy type also know as a golf or yard-gar. Nurse Rick takes his first swing at reading the current events. Comedy Chris calls in for a few laughs latter in the show. Nurse Rick has a Conspiracy Corner rant. A question from last episode about The Eifel Tower and The Statue of Liberty gets answered.

Episode 66: Tequila at Dave’s Depot
– Local Spotlight: Kelly of Aston at Twins and Roy of Perdomo at Plaistow Cigar

Not only are we drinking Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa and Incindia (chile choclate) tequila but Cuestion Tequila trips up The Reverend Harvey during Current Events. The Hidden Herf is a great cigar that we should have known but Nurse Rick throws us off the scent and gives us clues at the same time. We attended a couple of cigar events this week and give a recount of the experience. We go in a few different directions including making lamps from empty podcast juice liquor bottles, humidors, Valentines Day and getting the boat and the dock fixed up for the season.
